This mini guide covers almost 180 species that live in the area between land and sea called the intertidal, or littoral, zone. It includes all the most common molluscs, crustaceans, seaweeds, fishes, spiny creatures such as starfishes and sea urchins, mammals and many other species found here, and is invaluable for anyone wanting to find out more about the fascinating shells and other objects they may pick up on our shores. All the species are illustrated with superb full-colour artworks, and a concise written account for each covers size, general description, habitat, ecology, and distribution in Britain and the near Continent. The easy-to-follow layouts and superb artworks aid quick and accurate identification, making this book an indispensable reference in the field as well as at home. It is compact enough to fit in the pocket, yet packed with essential information for the nature enthusiast. To protect it against the elements in the field, the book is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a foldout insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing comparisons between similar-looking species. Sandra Doyle, Bridgette James, Denys Ovenden, Melanie Perkins, Helen Senior and Lyn Wells painted the illustrations.
